The dancer had her brunette locks falling in a curled style, opting for a makeup look with a dark smokey eye.

Aljaz opted for a classic look in a black suit, layered over a white shirt with black button detailing. 

The British Soap Awards returned live to ITV for the first time in two years after the 2020 and 2021 ceremonies were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In its place in 2020, ITV instead aired a 60-minute special titled The British Soap Awards Celebrates 21 Years.

The show was narrated by long-running presenter Phillip Schofield.

This year, host Phillip, 60, welcomed a number of soap stars to Hackney Empire, where they competed for prizes in 14 categories.

The awards were either voted for by a panel of expert judges or the public. 

Fans were also able to choose their favourites for the Best British Soap, Best Leading Performer and Best Family categories.
